FRANKIE DEBUSK

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS 4TH YEAR • FURMAN UNIVERSITY, 1991 Frankie DeBusk is entering his fourth year as athle�c director at Tusculum College. He was named interim director of athle�cs in August, 2007 and was promoted to the full-�me post later that year. DeBusk is also beginning his 13th season at the helm of the Pioneer football program. DeBusk oversees the day-to-day opera�ons of the Tusculum athle�c department and the 14 sports that the College sponsors. In his first three years at the helm of the Pioneer Athle�c Department, DeBusk has guided Tusculum to outstanding seasons. In the last three years, TC has captured nine South Atlan�c Conference championships, five SAC Tournament �tles and 14 NCAA Division II postseason appearances. Tusculum has finished fourth or be�er for the Doug Echols SAC Athle�c Excellence Award, including second in his first two years as athle�c director. With its outstanding na�onal postseason success during the 2008-09 campaign, Tusculum was the top league school in the NACDA Director’s Cup, finishing 58th of 272 Division II programs in the country. Tusculum student-athletes and coaches have garnered numerous individual accomplishments during DeBusk’s brief watch. In the last three years, 122 student-athletes have earned All-South Atlan�c Conference honors, including 55 AllRegion picks and 24 All-Americans. Twelve (12) have been selected as SAC Players of the Year, including four as Region Players of the Year. Three have also garnered Conference Freshman of the Year accolades. DeBusk has also stressed academic excellence in the department, resul�ng in 272 SAC Commissioner Honor Roll recipients over the last three years, including and a school record 26 named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Team. Thirteen (13) Pioneers have earned the pres�gious South Atlan�c Conference Scholar Athlete Award for their respec�ve sports, including six ESPN The Magazine Academic All-Americans®, including Dus�n Morrow (baseball - 2008), Nicole Ferris (women’s soccer - 2008), Jarrell NeSmith (football - 2008, 2009), Simon Holzapfel (men’s cross country - 2008) and Chase Carroll (men’s golf 2009). Three TC head coaches were either named Conference or Region Coach of the Year during the 2007-08 season. Tommy Arne� (men’s tennis) and Bre� Teach (men’s soccer) were named SAC Coaches of the Year, while Missy Tiber was selected as the Region Coach of the Year by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Associa�on (WBCA). DeBusk has overseen numerous athle�c facility enhancements during his tenure as both football coach and athle�c director at Tusculum. In 2007-08, championship banners were installed in Pioneer Arena, honoring the success of Tusculum athle�cs, both past and present. The Pioneer Arena playing surface was redesigned and refinished during the summer of 2008, while historic Rankin Hall, which houses the TC athle�c department, experienced renova�ons to its main lobby area. The Pioneer football locker room also experience a major renova�on with the installa�on of new lockers and floor. DeBusk, the winningest football coach in Tusculum history, has built the Pioneers into year in and year out contenders in NCAA II, resul�ng in seven winning seasons in the last nine years. Over the past 10 seasons, TC has posted a 64-44 mark including a 9-4 tally sheet in 2008, while claiming the program’s second South Atlan�c Conference Championship and earning the school’s first berth to the NCAA II Football Playoffs. For his efforts, he was named Conference and AFCA Region Coach of the Year. His 71 victories on the Pioneer sidelines makes DeBusk the winningest gridrion coach in Tusculum history. His victory tally is the fourth most in SAC history, while his 37 league wins are the seventh most in the conference record book. In 2008, DeBusk’s team achieved success both on and off the field. The nine wins �ed a school single-season record, including victories in four of its last five games.

He was the co-recipient of the Argauer Award again in the 2008-09 year. Frankie DeBusk is married to the former Jennifer Coffey of Bristol, Tenn. and they have one son, Ty.


TUSCULUM COLLEGE TUSCULUM HISTORY Tusculum College is the oldest college in Tennessee and the 28th oldest in the na�on. In addi�on, Tusculum is the oldest coeduca�onal ins�tu�on affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and an early na�onal pioneer in the admission of women. Tusculum accepted women students early in its history, and it is notable that by the turn of the 20th century more than half of its students were women. The roots of Tusculum College are buried deep in early American fron�er history. In 1794, George Washington was president of a young country and the state of Tennessee was s�ll two years away from becoming a reality. In what is now East Tennessee, Hezekiah Balch and Samuel Doak, Presbyterian ministers educated at the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University), were ministering to the pioneers of what was the southwestern fron�er of the United States. They also desired to meet the educa�onal needs of these Scots-lrish se�lers. Doak and Balch were visionaries ul�mately seeking the same goals through the rival colleges they established. Tusculum College as it now exists descends from two schools. The first, Greeneville College, was chartered in September 1794 by the General Assembly of the Territory of the United States South of the Ohio River, and established by Hezekiah Balch. Samuel Doak and his son Samuel Witherspoon Doak founded the second as Tusculum Academy in 1818. Tusculum Academy operated in a log cabin adjacent to the present site of Tusculum College. When the academy became Tusculum College in 1844, Andrew Johnson, who was to become 17th President of the United States, was one of its trustees. A merger in 1868 formed Greeneville and Tusculum College. In 1908, Greeneville and Tusculum College merged with Washington College, crea�ng Washington and Tusculum College. This union dissolved in 1912, and thus evolved modern-day Tusculum College. The College received formal accredita�on by the Southern Associa�on of Colleges and Schools 15 years later. The College takes its name from the ancient Roman town where the great statesman and educator Cicero had an academy at his villa. Cicero taught what are now called the liberal arts. They actually were cons�tuted by the prac�ces a ci�zen must develop to par�cipate effec�vely in leading his or her community - to play a vital role in civic affairs. TUSCULUM ACADEMICS As a Civic Arts ins�tu�on, Tusculum College prepares students to be effec�ve ci�zens, recognizing that they will need prac�cal wisdom to par�cipate in communi�es and enrich life�me experiences. Tusculum’s academic calendar is different from all but three other colleges in the country. The academic year is divided into two semesters and our students take four 3 1/2 week courses each semester, totaling eight courses for the year. Classes are taught one at a �me, with a four-day break in between. Three 3 1/2 week summer sessions are also offered. This allows our students to complete course requirements for the baccalaureate degree in four calendar years. Our unique Civic Arts program is being used as a model for other colleges and universi�es that seek to promote community, responsibility, and civic development. The Carnegie Founda�on for the Advancement of Teaching has recognized Tusculum as one of about a dozen schools (including Duke University and the University of Notre Dame) with a strong commitment to those ideals. As part of our emphasis on service-learning, we ask students to assess the needs of the community and complete a project to address those needs. Beyond helping key popula�ons, Tusculum students gain valuable experience in solving problems, apprecia�ng differences, and working with others. Tusculum College is a learning community where students and faculty members spend concentrated blocks of �me together exploring important areas of knowledge, developing and refining thinking and communica�on skills, wrestling with the �meless controversial issues that characterize the human condi�on, and applying themselves to the prac�cal solu�on of problems. Whether in the tradi�onal on-campus Bachelor of Arts programs or in the evening Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts programs for working adult-students, Tusculum College’s dis�nc�ve academic calendar lets students concentrate on learning one subject at a �me. It’s a tradi�on grounded in the belief that we best realize the poten�al of each individual when faculty members and students work closely together with the ul�mate aim of enriching the lives of our students and preparing them to contribute posi�vely to their communi�es. For many tradi�onal students, an ini�al reason for choosing Tusculum is our focused calendar, which allows students to take one course at a �me. For others, its our dis�nc�ve programs of study, from specialized areas such as Athle�c Training, Business Administra�on, and Museum Studies to strong arts and sciences areas such as Biology, English, and Psychology. Tusculum is well known throughout East Tennessee for the effec�veness of its Teacher Educa�on programs. Students are well prepared for careers in early childhood and elementary educa�on, in several secondary educa�on subject areas, in K-12 programs in Physical Educa�on and Visual Arts, and in Special Educa�on. But what o�en seals prospec�ve students’ decisions to join Tusculum’s community is the people. Tusculum a�racts topflight professors for the same reason that we a�ract students: small classes with close interac�on between professors and students, the focused calendar which allows concentrated study, and a Civic Arts curriculum that emphasizes community. Our professors are mo�vated and mo�va�ng. Excited and exci�ng. Whatever the major, you’ll find that Tusculum’s academics are innova�ve, and that our faculty is commi�ed to the success of our students. THE TUSCULUM CAMPUS Located in Greeneville, Tenn., Tusculum College lies in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains between Knoxville and the Tri-Ci�es (Bristol-Johnson City-Kingsport). Our wooded 190-acre campus has over 25 buildings, nine of which are listed on the Na�onal Register of Historic Places. The Albert Columbus Tate Library, one of our Na�onal Historic Sites, was built in 1910. The library is experiencing a major mul�-million dollar renova�on and expansion that will more than double the size of the current library facility, bringing our library space to 34,467 square feet. The Tate Library previously encompassed 12,000 square feet, and is incorporated into the expanded and renovated building. We also have two on-campus museums, one holding archives with materials da�ng to the College’s beginnings. The Andrew Johnson Presiden�al Museum and Library includes the Charles Coffin Collec�on containing materials from the Collegeís original library, the Andrew Johnson Library containing books, papers, and memorabilia from the 17th President of the United States, and the College Archives containing documents related to the history of Tusculum since its founding. Tusculum’s loca�on is convenient to shopping and entertainment, and our students enjoy access to such recrea�onal opportuni�es as backpacking, hiking, whitewater ra�ing, fishing and snow skiing. The city of Greeneville and Greene County have a combined popula�on of 65,000. Knoxville and the Tri-Ci�es are within a 70-mile radius of the campus.

In 2004, the Tusculum women’s team enjoyed a remarkable run winning its first 20 matches en route to a 20-1 mark while capturing its third straight conference crown and first SAC Tournament �tle. For his efforts, he wasnamed the South Atlan�c Conference Women’s Tennis Coach of the Year. That squad included four All-Conference players, including SAC Player of the Year Lesley Murray, who earned that honor for a remarkable fourth �me in her illustrious career. Only two players in league history have been named player of the year for their respec�ve sports. She was tabbed the 2003-04 SAC Female Athlete of the Year, becoming the first woman in TC history to earn this honor. Murray was also selected as the SAC Scholar Athlete of the Year for Women’s Tennis for a second �me in 2004. She was inducted to the SAC Hall of Fame in June, 2009, becoming the first Pioneer student-athlete to earn that pres�gous honor. In his first season, Arne� guided both the men and women’s teams to a pair of South Atlan�c Conference Championships, two na�onal rankings and berths to the NCAA Tournament. The Tusculum men established a school mark with an 18-2 record including a perfect 6-0 league slate to claim the Pioneers’ first SAC �tle. In 2002, the Pioneers also tallied a new school record winning 14 consecu�ve matches including the SAC Tournament �tle. TC ended the year ranked 40th in the na�on and for his efforts, Arne� was named SAC Men’s Tennis Coach of the Year.

Once again, Arne� was honored by his peers and named Conference Coach of the Year. The TC women went 15-4 in 2002 and won a share of its first SAC �tle. Tusculum knocked off na�onally-ranked Presbyterian College, ending the Blue Hose 56-match winning streak in league play. For a second straight year, the Tusculum women advanced to the NCAA Tournament and ended the year ranked 38th in the country. In 2003, the women’s team repeated their performance from a season before winning a share of its second SAC �tle.
